Vanessa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy supplies for making sweets, snacks, ice cream, and ice blocks to offer for sale.

Vanessa's story

Vanessa lives in a village in the Veiyanuyanu area, where she has noticed a lack of businesses that cater to children. To fill this gap, she has decided to open her own store, which will serve sweets, snacks, ice cream, and ice blocks to this important segment of the local community. Her goal is to expand her offerings to older youth groups also.

Vanessa is confident that targeting this market will enable her new business to be a great success.

She is thankful to all her Kiva lenders.
